sincerely, a person who has been on prozac for 9 years
this is in response to some shitty stuff i’ve seen on my dash recently. it’s super simplified, so if you’d like to know some more indepth stuff on how exactly it works, google it—OR BETTER YET actually talk to a mental health doctor psychiatrist person wow
NEVER call my sertraline a “happy pill”
It is a pill that helps my brain function healthily with an important neurotransmitter.
Also you do realize it’s a slow acting medication right?? Like its effects are incredibly delayed. I have about a week long processing time: I know because I could feel them when they had an effect for the very first time vs the day I started them. Now if I miss a day it’s not going to make everything horrid, but I will feel it in a week as a more difficult day for just functioning as a living being.
It doesn’t numb me nor does it make everything sunshine and daisies. It helps my brain work as it should.
Not to mention Prozac and Zoloft both function as pills for OCD, anxiety, and eating disorders, because they’re not “happy pills”. They don’t make you happy. They decrease tendencies towards repetitive actions and compulsions, and Prozac is used for eating disorders because it increases appetite. All it does is adjust chemicals, which does not make people “happy”.
In fact, if someone were to overdose on Prozac or Zoloft, or abuse it when they don’t have depression (or take too much if they do), it would cause irritable mood swings, an increase in depression, or suicidal thoughts, which should basically prove they aren’t happy pills.
They just work towards making a brain work in the neurotypical way.
IDK about SSRIs, but SSNRIs, which is what I’m on, are addictive - or at least cause withdrawal when you go off them. But aside from that, yes, this.

There was a coloring table

There was a lego table

This is the most wonderful thing that ever happened in four years of college.
